Peter Olisamedua Amangbo
Peter Olisamedua Amangbo, a long serving staff, has been appointed the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Nigeria’s Zenith Bank, effective from 1 June.
The electronics/electrical engineering graduate of the University of Benin will succeed Mr Godwin Emefiele, who has been confirmed by the Nigerian Senate as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Olisamedua Amangbo was, until this appointment, an Executive Director, a position to which he was appointed in 2005.
Sir Steve Omojafor broke the news of Olisamedua’s appointment in a letter sent to the Nigeria Stock Exchange on Monday, hours after the board of the bank approved the appointment.
The Central Bank of Nigeria will still need to endorse the appointment.
Amangbo attended University of Warwick for his MBA and he is also a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
